Palm Pre Development …

Today I finally got around to download and setup my development environment for WebOS (Palm Pre). Since the Pre is supposed to hit Germany via O2 in October it seems like a great Idea to look at it now to see if it’s the device for me.

So far I gotta say the whole experience feels kind of clunky, I’m sad to say. The simulator does not work out of the box but requires some permission setting to work with the Palm Eclipse Plugin, I got it to work quite easy googleing the error, but it still leaves a bad feeling.

Looking around in the documentation I have to say I will miss Interface builder, but oh well I guess I get used to it (and JavaScript) sooner or later. So for now I guess I gotta check out the SDK before the Pre hits Germany, so I can decide what to buy Palm Pre or iPhone 3GS (from Italy).
